(100 pts) Checking for new Email - POP3
Posted on 2000-05-11
I use Outlook 2000 which connects to an Exchange server that receives new Email. Once Outlook detects that you have a new Email on the exchange server, it makes the default sound and puts a small envelope icon in the System Tray to let you know you have new Email on the server. Outlook 95, 97, and 2000 all did this.
What I'd like to do is create a program that does this, but for POP3 Email accounts instead of exchange Email accounts. I need sample code on how to check a POP3 Email account for new Email and if there is new mail, pop up a message box saying so.
Please provide sample code and explaination if needed.
